Checked online banking this morning, as i do every day.

My normal direct debit to BG is £60 per month Gas and £57 per month Electricity. Got the last 1/4ly bill Sept so the monthly amount hasn't changed and i haven't been notified of any intention to change.

The fucking twats have taken £108 for the Gas and £59 for the elctricity. Whenh i phoned them up the nob on the phone told me that "they" have decided that from now on my monthly bill will be £108 for gas and £80 for electric as "i might use more energy in the future".

The over payment has actually left me in credit for both bills.

I have cancelled said direct debit and am switching.

It's only two months ago they took my monthly payment 6 times in one month!

He's back! Have just told him it's libel not slander as per lousfriend helpful post.

Woman on phone from eon is now making strange hiccoughing noises down the phone.

BG "manager" is now giving me lecture on getting more bees with honey.

They are all taking showers so they do not smell of poo anymore. Then they will accuse you of libel.

Can you slander someone to their face? I mean, is it slander if I say to someone "You are a skanky bitch whore?". If they're not, that is. Otherwise it's just true.

Hello Mr BritishGas who has just googled this.

We are being tongue in cheek when we call your company a bunch of c**whackers, BUT we do demand to know:

1. Why you changed Ms Newspirits Direct Debit without informing her?

2. Why you are obstructing her consumer right to switch suppliers?

3. Why you seem to have no idea how many meters you have on her property?

4. Why you are making such obscene profits, yet charging customers through the nose, and clearly not spending enough money on staff training and consumer relations?

Thank you!

is EON lady reading along? Oooh, Oooh please sing kumbaya down the phone to him - he will burst a vessel grin

Tamarto Thu 23-Oct-08 11:48:57

Do you have a third phone? The nice people in her office will dial 999 if needed, but beware if they hear you they may not be able to help her through the laughter grin

Have just snorted, at kumbaya. I think i may have burst BG mans eardrums.

He has told me to stop typing before he considers LEGAl ACTION!!

Yer right, you are a bald sweaty man in a cheap asda suit and have about as much legal action as a dead dog.

Eon lady must be reading, she has just been heard telling people to "come and look" grin
Note to Eon lady - please stop making choking noises, you had me very worried.


BALD BG MAN (sorry got carried away with caps there) is now "recalculating my bill on their system"

Lousfriend Thu 23-Oct-08 11:53:03

If you fancy a threesome phone call (oo-er) then here is how to contac the energy ombudsman

BTW, Mr British Gas, I was going to switch to you next month when my fixed rate electricity ends. I'm not going to now because you're clearly twaTs.

sb6699 Thu 23-Oct-08 11:53:37

This is hilarious!!!!!!!!

Has the eon lady got her breath back yet?

NewspiritsFromOldghosts Thu 23-Oct-08 11:54:46

have read your post to BG man bramshott,

he says he cannot comment on individual cases! WTF

I have a name! Don not reduce me to a faceless individual!

soon2be3 Thu 23-Oct-08 11:54:47

Let it go to court. My husband and I knew we were in the "right" so we allowed BG to issue a writ against us (this was back in 2000).

5 days prior court appearance, we received an apology letter and a refund!

Never heard from BG again!

We do not have a gas supply, we never had electric with them, we never consented to a switch over - we asked for proof, but it was not forthcoming.

IMO British Gas are dishonest bullies, who attempt to extort money from those they deem "an easy target" - that is, those they reckon will not have the wherewithall to attend a court appearance to defend themselves.

The fact that 8 years on, am I still hearing of similar stories, just goes to show how corrupt this country is.

sb6699 Thu 23-Oct-08 11:55:00

Do you have a third phone?

Could you phone scottish power for me and ask why they have put debt collectors onto me to collect £1038 for a flat which is EMPTY and has a fucking pre-payment meter cos nobody seems to know when I phone.

mamalovesmambo Thu 23-Oct-08 11:55:28

farkin cracking up - sides hurt. Coooeeee EON lady grin if we all switch to you, will you let us sing kumbaya to you?

elesbells Thu 23-Oct-08 11:55:31
